there has not been any discusson on that.
my view on removing maintainers is that it should be done only when the
maintainer is verified unresponsive and does not catter for his activities,
for example when we see test results pending for more than 1/2 weeks it's a
good reason to see if the maintainer is active.
on this particular case i feel ken and vitaly should have communicated more
to understand each others points of view and reach a consensus. although i
can totally see why ken decided to remove him from maintainer this should
not be done lightly.
